Far Resources Enters into Option Agreement on Lithium Property
April 28, 2016 – Vancouver, BC: Far Resources Ltd (CSE:FAT) (“Far Resources” or the “Company”) is pleased to announced that it has entered into an agreement to option the Zoro I claim (the “Zoro I Claim”) located in the Snow Lake area in Manitoba (the “Agreement”).
The Zoro I Claim
The Zoro I claim covers approximately 52 hectares near Wekusko Lake in western Manitoba. The Zoro I Claim covers a number of known lithium pegmatite occurrences, one of which contains an historic “reserve” based on 1956 drilling on the “Principal Dyke” of 1.727 million tonnes grading 0.94% Li2O.
The mineral reserve cited above is presented as an historical estimate and uses historical terminology which does not conform to current standards, and as such should not be relied upon. Although the historical estimates are believed to be based on reasonable assumptions, they were calculated prior to the implementation of National Instrument 43-101. These historical estimates do not meet current standards as defined under sections 1.2 and 1.3 of NI 43-10 and therefore should not be relied upon.
Zoro Option Agreement
The Company has entered into the Agreement with Top Notch Marketing Ltd., R. Ross Blusson and Double-U-Em Investments Ltd. (collectively, the “Optionors”) effective as of the date of this news release. Under the terms of the Agreement the Company can acquire a 100% interest in and to the Zoro I Claim (the “Option”) upon meeting the following requirements:
1. upon the execution of the Agreement, Far Resources must pay each of the Optionors $16,666.66 in cash and issue to each of the Optionors 333,333 Common shares;
2. on the first anniversary of the date of the Agreement, Far Resources must provide the Optionors with aggregate consideration of $300,000 which, at the election of the Optionors, can be satisfied by either (i) paying each of the Optionors $50,000 in cash and issuing each of the Optionors that number of Shares worth $50,000 at the time of issuance, based on the Average Price (defined below); or (ii) issuing each of the Optionors that number of Shares worth $100,000 at the time of issuance, based on the Average Price; and

The Average Price means the average of the Common shares’ closing prices for the 10 consecutive trading days immediately before the date in question. Far Resources must satisfy all of the condition above to be deemed to have exercised the Option.
The Company also wishes to announce a financing of up to 10 million units (the “Units”) at a price of $0.05 per Unit (the “Financing”) to raise an aggregate total of up to $500,000. Each Unit consists of one common share (the “Shares”) in the equity of the Company and one half of one share purchase warrant (each, a “Warrant”).
